'Douglas Strachan (1875-1950) was a Scottish artist who designed the stained glass windows in the chapel at Westminster College. Our chapel was commissioned by Sir William and Lady Black Noble in memory of their son William Black Noble, 2nd Lieutenant in the Northumberland Fusiliers, who died in World War One at Ypres in 1917. They asked Douglas Strachan to design the stained glass windows on the theme of the Benedicite - O all ye works of the Lord, bless ye the Lord - and Strachan's windows are full of strong, beautiful colour, and dynamic movement' (Douglas Strachan blog at westminster.cam.ac.uk/).
